Our 10th Half Marathon!

Monday, February 17, 2014

It was in Texarkana, Texas & Arkansas. It swung back and forth between the states. Kind of fun!

Before the race:

Ha! In front of the Arkansas Razorback HOG!

Now why did he take my picture with the hog's rear end? Just sayin'. emoticon

This is obviously a Texas mascot, but I don't know what. Maybe one of you does??

After the race! Still looking pretty good! We jogged 2 minutes, walked 3 minutes throughout the entire 13 miles. It was a personal record for us!!!!

My favorite feature of the race? SEX-SPECIFIC PORTA POTTIES!!!! What a treat!!!!

    emoticon emoticon You guys look great.

I love the idea of running between the 2 states. Great idea.

The one picture looks like a saber tooth tiger to me. Don't know why, but it does.

    Texas has backed away from longhorns so it may be a Houston Cougar?
Congratulations on the race!

    You look very good. That you've just finished a 1/2 marathon and look that good makes me smile. I'd be a puddle on the floor by then. Well done.
